Sophia Mathur is one of seven young people taking the Ford government to court for weakening Ontario’s 2030 climate target.
Sophia was the first student in Canada to join the Fridays for Future movement. Sophia started striking for the climate in her home city of Sudbury, Ont. in November 2018 — months before Swedish activist Greta Thunberg became a household name. In September 2019, Sophia joined Greta in New York, where the two participated in a panel on climate activism and marched in the Global Climate Strike on Sept. 20.
